BUFFALO SENDS CONDITIONAL 4TH-ROUND PICK TO MINNESOTA
Buffalo Bandits Director of Lacrosse Operations Scott Loffler today announced the team has traded a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2013 NLL Entry Draft to the Minnesota Swarm in exchange for forward Mat Giles, pending league approval.
The pick is conditional on Giles being on the Bandits roster or practice squad at any time in 2011 or 2012. Should Giles not make the Bandits active or practice roster, Buffalo will instead send their sixth-round pick in the 2013 Entry Draft in place of the fourth-round selection.
Giles (6’4’’, 245 lbs., 09/03/1975) is a 15-year NLL veteran that has scored 463 points (209+254) in 176 career games. He registered 43 points (16+27) in 16 games with the Swarm last season. Giles scored a goal and an assist in both meetings against Buffalo in 2011.
